  4. Blizzard Entertainment announced Thursday their decision to pull back further development on the multiplayer game, Heroes of the Storm. In a blog post, Blizzard President, J. Allen Brack and Chief Development Officer, Ray Gresko commented on all the new projects they have in the works and why these changes are being made. "We’re also at a point where we need to take some of our talented developers and bring their skills to other projects. As a result, we’ve made the difficult decision to shift some developers from Heroes of the Storm to other teams, and we’re excited to see the passion, knowledge, and experience that they’ll bring to those projects."

  6. If there’s one thing I love, it’s Kingdom Hearts. If there’s a second thing I love, it’s keeping track of weird phenomenon in pop culture release date scheduling. Luckily for me, 2019 has already proven itself to be a surprisingly packed time during a normally quite period of the year — February. While Sony has used February expertly for hits like Horizon Zero Dawn and Shadow of the Colossus, it’s a normally quiet month in pop culture. Until 2019, specifically on February 15.

  9. Mortal Kombat 11 is on the way in all of its gory glory, and sooner than we all thought. That’s great news for fighting game fans, as MKX was one of the best fighting games of 2015, but it wasn’t without its share of faults and missed opportunities. With that in mind, here are the 11 things we want from Mortal Kombat 11. What do you want to see in Mortal Kombat 11? Let us know in the comments, and check out our breakdown of its reveal trailer.

  11. Half of all Switch owners purchased Nintendo’s three biggest games, according to Nintendo of America president and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. Speaking to IGN about Switch’s success following The Game Awards last week, Fils-Aime said the attach rate for Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe represents a record in the United States. “Those three games continue to attach to hardware at better than 50 percent,” Fils-Aime told IGN. “Just think about that. For everyone who owns a system, more than one out of every two have bought Zelda, more than one out of every two have bought Kart, more than one out of every two have bought Odyssey. That's never happened in U.S. video game history.” Continue reading… View the full article
  12. Until Sonic The Hedgehog debuted on the SEGA Genesis, a fat plumber somewhat inexplicably served as the game industry's most recognizable icon. All of that changed when gamers saw SEGA's blue blur careening off springs, zipping through loops and wagging his finger disapprovingly at people still playing "baby games" on Super Nintendo. After several failed mascots (Alex Kidd, we hardly knew ye!) SEGA scored a major hit with Sonic, and he has remained the company's spokes-hedgehog for nearly three decades, appearing in dozens of titles across SEGA platforms. Even after the failure of the Dreamcast, Sonic endured, finding new life on Microsoft, Sony and even -- gasp -- Nintendo consoles. After the most recent reveal of Sonic in the upcoming live-action film, we thought we'd take a look at this visual history of the blue hedgehog to celebrate over 25 years of ramps, rings and Robotnik.

  13. 4A Games and publisher Deep Silver were planning to release Metro Exodus on February 22, but they have good news for fans of the post-apocalyptic franchise: The game is now arriving a little earlier. Metro Exodus will now release on February 15, 2019, meaning it will no longer be launching on the same day as BioWare's Anthem. Instead, its competition will be Crackdown 3 on Xbox One, as well as Far Cry New Dawn. The latter game was just announced at The Game Awards, and also features a nuclear post-apocalyptic setting, albeit in Montana instead of Moscow. Continue reading… View the full article
  14. Marvel's Spider-Man's third and final DLC, Silver Linings, will be released on December 21 for PlayStation 4 for $9.99, Insomniac Games announced today on the PlayStation Blog. The DLC will focus on Silver Sable, who appeared in the base game and returns here to take back her stolen Sable International technology. Due to previous in-game events, Spider-Man will be without the aid of New York Police Chief Yuri Watanabe and will instead have to depend on some new and unlikely allies to help him protect New York City.

  20. Gris is a visual masterpiece. It’s a living watercolour illustration that explores the complex themes of loss and grief through a visually arresting world and affecting orchestral score. At first glance, Gris looks to be a fitting bookend to a year that started with Celeste - a game that married an exploration of mental illness with incredible platforming gameplay, but ultimately its basic level design and many minor frustrations make its exceptional qualities feel only skin deep. Gris’s story can be obtuse at times as it opts to tell it through symbolism rather than dialogue. The main character, a heartbroken young woman, has lost her voice and wanders the empty, motley world with no real sense of purpose. As she explores and the landscape changes from windswept deserts littered with debris and collapsed buildings to forests and underwater labyrinths that hide curious creatures both friend and foe, she learns new skills to overcome obstacles and eventually find her way “out”. Like a painting in an art gallery or an art house film, Gris leaves itself open to interpretation. Continue reading… View the full article

Mortal Kombat 11, by NetherRealm Studios, was officially announced at The Game Awards for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Continue reading… View the full article
  24. GB........0...3...3...8......14 CHI.......0..14...0...3......17 It’s the season for giving and the Packers didn’t disappoint. The Bears were able to capitalize on 2 red zone picks (one a deflection off the receiver’s hand) and a missed field goal. But still had to hold their breath for the onside kick as Green Bay came storming back. Another gift came by way of Kevin White’s 74 td reception as the defender fell down. It is better to receive than to give. STAT........GB........CHI TY............292........208 PY............275........201 RY.............17............7 TO..............2.............0 PR..........68.6........145.8 Great comeback Mike against all odds!
